A sad reflection on the difference between childhood and adulthood.

To mourn the passing of Innocence

Once, I believed everything I was told with passion and joy.
Once, I smiled gaily, not seeing the dark places of the world.
Once, I loved everything and everyone with the fresh joy of the young.
Once.
Not now.
Now, I weigh and measure every word uttered.
Now, only sometimes do I smile and rarely does it reach my eyes.
Now, my trust is hard earned, rarely given.
Now, I am the sadder and wiser girl.
O how I mourn the passing of my innocence.
